Pisgah is a favorite stop while touring asheville, the pale ale (flagship) was a little underdeveloped or green. It's a great beer to enjoy with dinner but I'd prefer something fresher and refined for a daytime brew. The recipe seems to have changed in the years I've been drinking it, but it's always a good standby.

Thanks to my bro in law for nabbing a growler of this for my visit. I am assuming this is the same as their pale ale currently on tap. Enjoyed from a pint glass.

a - brew poured a soft brown orange that was semi transparent when held to the light. Head was thin and fizzy.

s - nice pale malts, some earthiness, but very appetizing.

t - extremely balanced pale ale. Not hoppy at all, just a classic American pale. Fresh and crisp. Clean and malty. A bit grainy, but nice overall.

m - crisp and light bodied. Could toss them back all day.

o - overall a really nice American pale ale. Malt forward and not hoppy. Classic. Solid.
